Dunedin's cultural institutions are working closely together and are showing "fantastic co-operation", Otago Museum director Dr Ian Griffin says.

Dr Griffin mentioned, during a recent Otago Museum Trust Board meeting, that the museum had loaned some artefacts from its collection to the University of Otago's Otago Collections research library.

The loan was for an exhibition marking the university's 150th anniversary.

The Otago Museum was also continuing to run the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum cafe, he said.

The two museums and the Dunedin Public Art Gallery were working well together, and links with the university were also close.

"There's fantastic co-operation between all of us," he said.
